Shireland Hall Primary Academy

The Federation of George Betts and Shireland Hall Primary Schools Shireland Hall Primary and George Betts Schools were federated in November 2011 and now work together to provide the best opportunities possible for the children and families that they serve in Smethwick, West Midlands. Executive Head Teacher, Travis Latham joined Shireland Hall as Head Teacher in January 2006 and has overseen strong school improvement, developing expertise in the teaching of children with EAL combined with a commitment to engaging families in all areas of school life. Shireland Hall Primary now takes a similar but distinctive approach to its learning community where children and families are put at the center of its work. Allan Shephard, Principal at George Betts has a proven track record at LA level in improving outcomes for children in Mathematics.

Our Academy is committed to working with children, families and the local community in supporting children to be Successful Learners, Confident Individuals and Responsible Citizens. We value high standards of education as well as developing children’s sense of self and their responsibilities to the wider community. Our outcomes are great but we are always striving to achieve more for the benefit of our children and families!

We are fortunate not only to be working together in a brand new school building, designed to facilitate a wide range of learning styles, but also to have a team which is enthusiastic about, and utterly committed, to the children in our care.
